By PAM LASKIN On Reading Edward Hopper by Mark Strand (Viewing Hopper) Two Days after Hurricane Sandy, October 31, 2012 The walls are shedding grief plaster chipped like tiny tears. I feel myself a tourist in my home at my desk, outside these wide windows the residual rage of yesterday’s hurricane covers the ground. Inside the lonely quiet, outside more dead trees than people; 106 now I’m Edward Hopper with my sorrowed palate of words. BRN-FALL-2013.indb 106 9/13/13 12:48 AM
